Also speaking on the matter, senior security official with one of the aviation agencies dismissed initial statement from the police that the suspect was a lunatic, saying he was sent by somebody on a mission.

“I don’t think that the suspect is a lunatic. If the police say that he is a lunatic let them prove that he is one. From my own assessment, the suspect was on a mission; he was sent by somebody, but the police have not given us more information. I went to see him and the young man spoke both in English and in Hausa. The police said they should be given time to investigate the suspected devices, so let me give them time,” the official said.
